For my third year, I began with an in depth discussion over the types of Geometry. We had a few debates and lots of illustrations and demonstrations. I couldn't believe how engaging these discussions were and how useful an old basketball could be!
Then we dove into the foundations of Euclidean geometry. Next year, I plan on teaching constructions as a continually developing concept through each unit. I love the vocabulary development that results from these experiences. Constructions became a hands-on collaborative activity for my classes.
Pg. 1. Foundations of Geometry: (This is the Unit 1 I have been creating for next year. Information has been pulled from the CSCOPE curriculum mostly. Some have been pulled from older journals.)
Unit Pocket (yes, it is backwards)
Pg. 2. Geometry - "To measure the earth" (These are foldables-mainly half folds, that are glued on a sheet of construction paper folded in half. I use the half fold book alot.)
